WHO WE ARE

Children's Campaign Fund is led by a dedicated staff and board of directors who are advocates for all of Washington’s children, youth, and families. As a volunteer-led organization for over 30 years, we hired our first Executive Director in fall 2020.

STAFF

WITH DEEP APPRECIATION

OUR DEEPEST APPRECIATION & GRATITUDE to the amazing Jess Agi, Children’s Campaign Fund’s First Executive Director who will be relocating from WA and leaving us for CA this week.  Two years ago, at the height of the pandemic, CCF hired our first Executive Director who, through talent and tenacity, led our organization through our transition from a volunteer organization to not just one, but now two organizations (a PAC and a newly formed 501c4).  She leaves our organization operationally stronger, with systems and processes in place, and a fiscally sound budget, helping us support more legislative allies than ever.  Her skills and wizardry in creating engaging videos and online communications brought CCF’s visibility to a whole new level.  Through a collaboration she established, legislators are building a knowledge foundation about the policy issues related to child care and early learning. As we transition to our new executive director (soon to be announced), please join us in saying THANK YOU to the amazing Jess!

Please join us in celebrating Hikma Sherka, CCF's Political Action and Outreach Manager, as she has recently transitioned out of her role. We are deeply grateful for her powerful leadership and transformative contributions during more than three years on CCF's staff. We wish her all the best in an exciting new chapter!
